If you’re worried that someone is avoiding you by either signing in as invisible or by changing their stealth setting so that they appear offline to you. Previously we discussed about 4 Best Ways to Detect Invisible Users on Yahoo Messenger Online. Here are three simple ways to check whether your friends are online or not without going to any web sites or Installing any software.
The first way is to use the Doodle IMVironment. Start an offline conversation with the contact and send them a dummy message. If they’re actually online, this should open a conversation window on their machine.
Now, select the Doodle IMVironment from IMVironments > See All IMVironments > Yahoo Tools. If your contact is really offline, you’ll see “Waiting for your friend to load Doodle” for a really long time. If, however, your contact is online, the IMVironment should load in less than a minute and let you draw in it.
For the Victims:
I got something for the victims of this trick too. If you’re being annoyed by someone who’s using the above method, you could:
1. Add them to your ignore list, or
2. Disable IMVironments by going to Connection > Preferences and uncheck the “Enable IMVironments” box under Messages.
These other methods are quite basic and may not necessarily always work.
The second way is by Trying to start a voice conversation with the contact. If the person is really offline, you will be asked to leave a voicemail after the ringing times out. If the person is invisible, all you’ll get is a “No Answer” message.
The third and the last way is to invite the person to a conference. If the contact is offline, you’ll soon get an error message saying “Conference could not be started”. If the contact is online, your conference room will just sit empty till your contact either explicitly declines your invitation or if they finally relent and accept your invitation.
Now find out all the people who are ignoring you and Now you can satisfy your inner stalker once again.
